Edward & Sons Baked Brown Rice Snaps®

Baked Brown Rice Snaps® ReviewEpicurean Vegan has posted these kind words about our Edward & Sons Baked Brown Rice Snaps®:

I discovered these crackers a few months ago, and I’ve been buying them ever since. They’re made by Edward & Sons and come in a variety of flavors including vegetable, toasted onion, and black sesame. I’ve only been able to find the vegetable and toasted onion ones at the store, but you can order the other varieties online. Of the two, the vegetable flavored one is my favorite. These are vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and 96% organic. Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic White Rice Flour, Organic Expeller-Pressed Sunflower Oil, Carrots, Garlic, Onions, Red Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Green Bell Peppers. Dehydrated vegetable powders. It ain’t easy finding a tasty vegan and gluten-free cracker, but looks like Ed and his sons have done an excellent job!

They’re ideal with Daiya cheese!

Vegan and Organic Products Review
Edward & Sons

Edward & SonsDomestic Sweetheart has published these reviews of our Edward & Sons family of products:

“I recently stumbled across Edward & Sons and couldn’t wait to share. Going organic is all the rage these days and there are plenty of reasons as to why go organic. A vegetarian company, all products are free of meat or fish. Most products are also vegan free of honey, egg and dairy too. Their diverse product selection contains NO artificial ingredients and includes a number of gluten-free, soy-free and lactose-free foods, well appreciated by customers with special dietary needs.

As a trading company Edward & Sons supplies quality organic ingredients to some of the worlds top producers, but are best known for their extensive selection of packaged NATURAL foods.

Here are some of my favs.

Miso-Cup Japenese Style
So easy to make and super delicious! Just squeeze contents and add 8oz. of hot water. Add contents of one Tofu and Veggie Packet, stir and enjoy! This miso soup is low in calories and perhaps the “first convenience health food”.

Extoic Rice Toast Jasmine Rice & Spring Onion
Natural whole grain squares that are to perfect to satisfy your snack craving. I really like hummus on these tasty treats!

Brown Rice Snaps Black Sesame
These snaps are gluten free, low fat, and low sodium. I also like to eat these with hummus.

Italian Herbs Organic Croutons
I LOVE these croutons! Low sodium, bite size, perfect for salads soups and stuffing! You’re sure to fall in love.”

Organic Pasta Dinner Review
Road’s End Organics® Organic Pasta Dinners Shells & Chreese®

The Veracious Vegan has published this review of our Road’s End Organics® Organic Pasta Dinners – Shells & Chreese®:

Road’s End Organics® by Edward & Sons started making vegan macaroni and cheese back in 1998. Yep, 14 years ago. This was when vegans had very few choices for faux cheese. Today, we have lots of choices, but I still go back to the old standby Shells & Chreese every so often. I’ll admit that the chreese packet may not taste exactly like cheese, but if you go into it knowing it doesn’t taste just like cheese, you can enjoy it for what it is — a great shells and chreese product.

All you do is boil the noodles, then once they are done, drain them and put them aside. Mix the chreese powder with 1/4 cup of soy or almond milk in an empty saucepan off the stove. Add the pasta to the pan and mix well with the sauce, then return the pan to the stovetop and heat for a couple minutes until the chreese thickens. That’s it! So easy and so yummy.

You don’t need to be an old-school vegan to truly appreciate the nutritional yeast-based cheese. It may be nothing like Daiya, but, it is good in its own right. They make both cheddar and alfredo style chreese sold with noodles or without.

Gluten Free Ice Cream Cone Review
Let’s Do…® Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones

veggiefoodlover has reviewed our Let’s Do…® Gluten Free Ice Cream Cones:

Gluten Free Ice Cream Cone Review

Forget a boring bowl! Edward & Sons Let’s Do…Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones bring a little joy back to ice cream!

I never, ever thought I would miss ice cream cones.  I mean…they often get soggy, and sometimes can be a bit messy.  So, it’s always a bowl for me.  And when I’m out at an ice cream shoppe or a fro yo place, that’s the way it has to be.  Gluten-free isn’t offered just anywhere.  And around here…it’s practically non-existent.  At those kinds of places…it’s all about the bowl, cup, or whatever it is served in.

No cone. And I never thought anything about it.

But then my local grocery store was running a closeout on their gluten-free aisle.  Which, immediately sent me into a panic.  What if they were getting rid of all of this?  What if I’d have to really just start shopping at the expensive natural food stores (I would do it…but my food budget is already crazy!)?  What if all of this was going away never to be seen again?  I literally grabbed a cart and my roommate and I began piling things inside.  Whatever we felt we would most definitely like to try, already knew we liked, and just were curious about.

One of the boxes that made the gluten-free closeout cut…was Edward & Sons Let’s Do…Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones.

Now, growing up my mom used to buy ice cream cones and would scoop up some amazing ice cream into it.  And we, as a family, would enjoy this for dessert.  During the summer months in my small town, a little restored barn up the way sold ice cream (soft serve) and we would always go down there for dessert.  They knew our order and had it ready when our car turned in.  It was a treat.  And we are an ice cream loving family.  Despite lactose intolerance…I still am very much this way. So, yeah…while I never thought I would miss that crunch of an ice cream cone…I discovered…I did.

With some So Delicious Dairy-Free Ice Creams in the freezer, last night I was looking for something easy for dessert.  It could have been ice cream…or cookies.  But, I have been craving ice cream.  And I had a bad day, and my roommate mentioned ice cream.  And I knew there was no getting to The Comfy Cow on a weeknight, so…ice cream at home it was.  But…then it dawned on me that we had those gluten-free ice cream cones as well.  So as I finished up my dishes, I asked her to go grab them.  It was going to be an ice cream cone night!

Out of the freezer came So Delicious Dairy Free Chocolate Velvet Soy Milk Ice Cream (OMG YUM!!!).  And I carefully opened up the box of Edward & Sons Let’s Do…Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones.

They looked like every ice cream cone my mom ever bought for us growing up.  They looked like the standard kids cones you would get at an ice cream parlor these days.  The only thing was…these were gluten-free.  So…I could eat them!!  I dished up a serving of the rich, decadent chocolate ice cream into each done (one for me; one for my roomie) and we settled in for a true treat indeed. As with any cone, it takes a moment to get down to it.  First you have to devour the ice cream piled on top.  I did that, lick-by-lick, savoring, and anticipating that cone.  And when I got there…I discovered it was worth the wait.  First of all, these cones did not get soggy.  At all.  They held their shape and their crunch as I worked my way through it.  Second of all…the flavor was just as good, if not better, as the ice cream cones I grew up eating, at home or at the ice cream parlors.  Honestly.  And the best part is…these cones only set you back 12 calories.  Yes.  12.  Twelve.  1-2.  They are fat free, sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan!  In other words…my dream ice cream cone.

They taste sweet without being too sweet.  In fact, it is more of a compliment to the ice cream that is stuffed inside.  The crunch is fantastic…not too soft and not too hard.  But it adds that bit of texture to the ice cream experience.  Man…I was one happy girl sitting on my couch enjoying a good old-fashioned vegan ice cream cone with vegan ice cream.

If the little things in life are what make people happy, then a simple gluten-free ice cream cone brought me one of the happiest moments of my life.  And I had another one tonight.  I’m not ashamed.  In fact, I’m hooked.  I don’t think I’ll ever not have ice cream cones in this house.

Thank you, Edward & Sons…for such a simple treat that even the gluten-intolerant can once again enjoy.

Baked Brown Rice Snaps® Review
Edward & Sons Baked Brown Rice Snaps®

Baked Brown Rice Snaps® ReviewTickety-boo Health Coaching has posted these kind words about our Edward & Sons Baked Brown Rice Snaps®:

“Texture is a very important character of every food we eat or drink. To many people it is even more important than taste.

If we think of the different textures we distinguish, there is: crunchy, chewy, crispy, juicy, squashy, runny, solid, hard, soft, soggy, firm, creamy, fatty, etc.

The components and ingredients within foods plus the processes they go through determines their textures.

So do you have a favorite texture? Is there one texture that you tend to prefer to a snack? In this series of blog posts, I’ll be exploring different textures and some healthy snack options that can satisfy those textures. This means that if you crave your usual snack that maybe isn’t so healthful, by identifying the texture of the snack, you can try substituting a more healthful snack that has the same texture.

For me, my favorite texture is crispy. I love that firmness and the sound as you crack through it. When I fancy a snack, it is crisp that I tend to go for. In my not-so-healthy eating days, potato chips would be what I’d grab. In identifying “crisp”, it seems similar to crunchy, but the difference is that crisp is something thin, whereas crunchy is a thicker texture.

So I have a few alternatives that I now go to for my crispy fix. The first is Edwards and Sons Baked Brown Rice Snaps.

They come in different flavors but my favorites are the Tamari Seaweed ones. This flavor has no added oils or preservatives. The plain unsalted ones similarly have no oil, but I find them a little too plain! Some of the other flavors have added oil, so read the label. Here are the ingredients.

They have a great snap when you bite into them. They are good for dips and worth a try! I’ll share some more crispy healthy snacks with you soon.”
